WHITEMARSH TOWNSHIP AWARDS J. P. MASCARO & SONS TWO WASTE SERVICE CONTRACTS VALUED AT $10 MILLION

At its November 14, 2019 public meeting, the Whitemarsh Township Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to award local waste company J. P. Mascaro & Sons two comprehensive three-year with two option years waste service contracts starting on January 1, 2020, and valued at more than $10 million. 

The first contract is for the collection, transportation and disposal of Township residential waste, and the second is for the curbside collection, transportation and processing of single stream household recyclables.

"The Whitemarsh contract is one of the largest municipal contracts in the region, and our company very much values the Township's business," said company President, Pat Mascaro, "and we are particularly pleased that the Township has decided to move away from incineration of its waste and instead has chosen to have its residential waste disposed of at our modern, company-affiliated Pioneer Crossing Landfill in nearby Berks County," Mascaro added.

Whitemarsh Township waste previously went to the Covanta Incinerator in Plymouth Township, but because of opposition from residents to the Covanta Incinerator and their concerns about the negative effect that the incinerator has had on the Township's residents and the community in general, the Township's waste will be disposed of at Mascaro's Pioneer Crossing Landfill, which is held in high regard by the Pennsylvania DEP, and which creates "Green Energy" from landfill gas that is converted into electricity for off-site customer use.

Under the awarded contracts, Township residents will receive once a week trash and recycling services, with the recyclables being collected in 64 gallon contractor-provided toters, and thereafter processed and marketed at Mascaro's modern, fully-automated 85,000 sq. ft. TotalRecycle single stream recycling facility in Exeter Township, immediately adjacent to the Pioneer Crossing Landfill.  Under the new contract, yard waste will also be collected weekly.

J. P. Mascaro & Sons is a local, family-owned company, founded and headquartered in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, and it is one of the largest and most successful privately-owned waste service companies in the country.  Mascaro will service the Whitemarsh Township contract out of its Bridgeport, Pennsylvania Division.

The Mascaro company was founded by Joseph P. Mascaro, Sr. more than 50 years ago, and through the efforts of his five sons has grown tremendously and succeeded in a difficult industry.  A third generation of Mascaro family members are now in key management positions and are looking forward to carrying on the business started by their grandfather.
